Why Do We Use Academic Drawings Instead of Digital Models?

Digital models are programmed to move how we perceive a person would move. But not everyone moves the same way. For
example, a contortionist has looser ligaments and can twist their bodies in unusual ways. Still, the abnormalities do not
affect the organs or the anatomical structure.

Drawing is not restricted by how we perceive movement. Drawing has no bias. Digital models are unable to effectively
recreate a scene the way a trained, academic artist can. We illustrate the impartial facts.
Our artist can assist with composite sketches of unknown subjects, aging missing  children, or reconstructing skulls from
recovered remains

The illustrations below were generated from the partial image captured on a surveillance camera in Puerto Rico - within
six hours of releasing the illustrations to the media, the suspect was apprehended when a viewer identified him from the
drawing.

Anatomical Illustration
The Accuracy of Our Illustrations:

Anatomy is the same for every person. If a human is big, their anatomy is big. If a human is small, their anatomy is small.
The heart is still a heart. The pelvis is still shaped like a pelvis. The height and width of a person do not affect anatomy
placement, only their size as it relates to the rest of their body.

If there is an abnormality, it will be cited in the autopsy reports/medical documents. They are written by vetted medical
professionals. We take these absolute facts from the documents and visually reconstruct it.

First, we draw a figure on top of the bullet trajectory. The yellow line in the illustration is the trajectory, which is taken
directly from the medical document. The bullet entered the 9th rib, through the liver, diaphragm, heart, and lungs. These
elements are placed on the yellow line (bullet trajectory). This is how we accurately position the body the moment the bullet
entered it.

There is no speculation. Through the photos and evidence, we recreate an unbiased scene of what factually happened.
